My husband is a naval history buff, so, of course, we had to stop here. It was incredibly interesting. Wonderful displays and very good narratives to go along with the exhibits. The Titanic exhibit is done very well. We especially enjoyed seeing all of the ship models upstairs. Great place for a family outing.

Nice small museum with all kinds of exhibits on local history, the great explosion in the harbor, titanic etc. Maybe not as much kid's hands-on as some museums but very educational for adults

This is an excellent museum with a wide range of exhibits. I hadn't realized what a crucial port Halifax has been over the years, or that Titanic survivors were taken to Halifax. Fascinating for those who love and sea (and those who are married to them).

Informative, low cost, family friendly. A short cab ride from downtown hotels. A great place to go especially if there is poor weather.

Anyone with an interest in boats, ships or the sea will find Halifax's Maritime Museum a delight. This facility surpasses all expectations. Summertime is better because of the dockside displays but even in winter the inside exhibits offer several hours of first rate entertainment for visitors of all ages.
